This song was a massive radio hit in my neck of the woods aways back. So much so that I got a bit burnt out on it. But that was a while ago now. I’m not sure what reminded me of this song, but when I started listening to it again, I was like, “Oh, yeah, it may have been over-exposed, but this is a pretty good song.”
I don’t follow Of Monsters and Men as closely as I used to. Their more recent work generally doesn’t excite me as much as the earlier stuff.
Which is why it took me longer than it should have to pay attention to their new song, Destroyer. That’s a shame, because it bucks the trend of their newer stuff being less good. This song can easily stand with anything off My Head Is an Animal.
